The "Happier Hour" at Basil Canteen (1489 Folsom at 11th St.) has an awesome menu of $5 snacks that captures the breadth of street-food offerings in Thailand, from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. The sai ouah pictured is a cavalcade of flavor, as you layer slices of Chiang Mai curried pork sausage with peanuts, ginger, lime, peppers, and onion. Other cheap stunners include the sakhoo saimu (pork and nuts encased in tapioca dumplings), peurk tod (taro fries with sweet sauce), and giow grob (fried shrimp and pork wontons). They're available Sundays through Thursdays from 5 to 7 p.m.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
